XJS Celebration Coupe Advice Please

Recommended Posts

Hi. I am new to this forum and looking for some advice. I have a Jaguar XJS 4.00 Celebration Coupe Registered on 1-1-96. It was given to me by my step father, before he died, who bought it from new. The car is in extremely good condition, ice blue in colour and has only 14,134 miles on the clock - it is pretty much in original condition, has been garaged every winter since 1996, and has had regular MOT,s. It has been used sparingly in the summer months. Sadly because it is not being used I am looking to sell it and the advice I am seeking is: How much, realistically should I ask for it, should I sell it online, at an auction, or should I take it to a Jaguar Enthusiasts Show for people to see it. I have not advertised it for sale yet and your advice would be very welcome. Thank you. Graham

Welcome to the club, Graham.

An XJS is such a good condition and with such a good history should make a very good price, and I would not consider an auction unless it was organised by a classic car club.

I would be inclined to take the car to somewhere where Jaguar Owners and enthusiasts attend, such as the monthly breakfast meet at the Gaydon Museum, or some other  similar event such as the Coventry Jaguar even on the 29th June.

I would not immediately ask for a price, but putting up a car with its history details on the windscreen and a For Sale  Card on the windscreen should attract a good price.  At a guess, an XJS/Classic Car enthusiast should offer a good price and over the £20k mark.

Good luck,

Regards,

Peter.

Hi Peter

Thank you for your reply. I will check out the June 29th event as you recommend. I will be sad to see this go but it needs a home where someone will run it on a regular basis.  Thanks. Graham
